Trump Taunts Iowa Crowd: “I’ll Probably Run for President”

Trump taunts Iowa crowd: Mr. Trump was giving a speech at the first of four rallies he will hold in the next five days in order to campaign for Republican candidates in the midterm elections that will take place the following week.

Will Trump Seek the Presidency Again in 2024?

Trump told a gathering in Sioux City, Iowa, “Get ready” for a 2024 presidential run. He paused to let the audience yell his name. “Soon.” “Prepare” Trump has coyly suggested he’ll run for president again in 2024 but hasn’t declared it. “I’ll probably do it again to make our nation successful, safe, and magnificent,” he declared Thursday. “Likely,”

Donald Trump was in Iowa to aid Republican candidates ahead of next week’s midterm elections, appearing with Gov. Kim Reynolds, Sen. Chuck Grassley, and others. He rapidly deflected attention back to himself by making unfounded charges of voter fraud, favoring same-day voting and paper ballots to “save money,” and pledging to “make America great again.”

He’s allegedly planning a 2024 presidential run. Trump’s associates expect him to launch his 2024 campaign shortly after Election Day, according to USA TODAY. In 2024, Iowa’s Republican caucuses will start off the presidential nomination process, and potential contenders have already visited the state.

Iowa Republicans hope Trump’s visit will energize their supporters in dark-red northwest Iowa and boost midterm participation. Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene praised Trump as the GOP’s “one real leader.” “Republicans must be the new Republican Party,” she said. We can’t be the party of Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Dick Cheney, George Bush, Mitt Romney, etc.

Many Iowans wanted to hear it. By 2:30, lineups formed.
Bob Witchey landed at Sioux Gateway Airport at 10 a.m. Thursday, nine hours before Trump’s Iowa event. Witchey, a 61-year-old cattle rancher from O’Neill, Nebraska, bought a camouflage “Trump 2024” cap. They discussed the necessity for Republicans to win control of the House and Senate next week, reduce government spending, and arrest more aliens at the Mexican border.

Witchey called the occasion a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to meet Trump. “I didn’t wait eight hours to stand here,” he remarked, rattling the green paper wristbands on his wrist. “I’m upfront. It’s my trophy.”

Reynolds leads entrepreneur Deidre DeJear in an October Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll. The same poll indicates Grassley’s smallest margin since he was first elected to the Senate and “squeaky tight” races in two House seats.

Republicans hope a “red tsunami” of passion and unhappiness with the ruling party would help them sweep out Democrats and boost down-ballot candidates like Brenna Bird and Todd Halbur. Reynolds said, “We’re pumped up tonight.” “We speak a lot about a red wave five days out. We must develop the red wave. We need you to create it.”

“Help me get Brenna Bird as my AG!” Reynolds clapped. Bird is challenging Iowa’s Democratic AG, Tom Miller. Grassley threw up some political red meat.

“I won’t stop trying to rid the FBI of political bias,” he stated. “I’ll keep investigating Hunter Biden and other Bidens.” Iowa Democrats criticized Trump and GOP allies.

“While Kim Reynolds and Chuck Grassley play around with a defeated former president who attacks our democracy, Iowa Democrats are busy knocking on doors,” stated Iowa Democratic Party Chair Ross Wilburn. Kim Reynolds, Chuck Grassley, and the Iowa GOP follow instructions from corporate contributors, millionaire friends, and MAGA Republicans.

Trump has hinted at another presidential candidacy but hasn’t declared it. “I’ll probably have to do it again to make our nation successful, safe, and glorious,” he declared in Texas last month.

AP writes that Trump’s staff is examining prospective locations and dates for a formal declaration after the election, but the former president continues to tease the notion of revealing his intentions at one of his election-homestretch rallies.

Trump placed second in the 2016 Iowa caucuses behind U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. The president visited often. His leadership PAC has subsequently recruited two Iowa-based political operatives, providing him a footing in the state.

Trump praised Iowa at a rally in Des Moines last year. “As awful as the Biden administration has been, no one can blame Iowa because we performed so well,” he remarked. “Oh, Iowa!” Biden wants to pursue a second term and says he’s the greatest candidate to challenge Trump in 2024.

23% of Iowans hope Biden runs again, while 67% hope he doesn’t. 37% of Democrats want him to run again.

The Justice Department is investigating how secret materials got to his Palm Beach, Florida, club. State prosecutors in Georgia continue to investigate his efforts to overturn the 2020 election, as are the DOJ and the House committee probing the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, which just subpoenaed him.

New York Attorney General Letitia James sued Trump for decades of illegal accounting. The Trump Organization is on trial for tax fraud, and Trump just gave a deposition in a rape case filed by E. Jean Carroll. Trump rejects them.

Iowa will host its regular first-in-the-nation Republican caucuses in 2024 to open the presidential nomination process. Former VP Mike Pence, Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Sen. Tom Cotton are among them.

Brenda Vodensteine, Barb Kreber, and Julie Phillips came Thursday to invigorate. They hope Trump runs in 2024. Julie’s husband, 67-year-old Bob Phillips, praised his courage.

Vodensteine: “He’s the only courageous one.”

Kreber: “He’s smart.”

Vodensteine: “We had prosperity” Safety was ours.

Kreber: “And common sense.”

Bill Wood, 70, of Galva, isn’t convinced Trump will run in 2024. He’s intrigued by DeSantis and wants to watch the primary. Retired Tyson Foods manager Wood said Republicans need to take control of Congress, monitor the border more, and spend less. He supports Grassley and doesn’t mind his age.

He should leave said Woof. I’m unsure. He’s thoughtful. He’s strong. He’d have to start anew.
